Avocado Sandwiches

Photo by: Tom Eckerle

Yield: Makes 20 half-sandwiches

INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 large ripe tomato-peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 6 slices crisp cooked bacon, chopped
  • 2 medium-size ripe avocados
  • 20 thin slices sprouted wheat bread

Directions

In a small bowl, cream the butter with the cilantro.  Lightly butter each slice of bread.

Spread a little of the tomato on 10 slices of the bread and dust with the bacon.  Thinly slice the avocados and arrange over the bacon.

Top each sandwich with a slice of buttered bread.  Trim the crusts and cut in half diagonally.

Pack in an airtight container, covered with damp paper towels.  Close tight until ready to serve.
